Without a doubt, yes.

People are obligated not to act unethically. When businesses act in a certain way, it is because people cause them to act in that way. Therefore, if a corporation is acting unethically, people have caused them to act unethically, and are therefore acting unethically, themselves. I'm not sure what people don't seem to understand about this.

Should Corps Be Ethical?

Yes, yes, yes! And in reply to Anonymous of 15/10/08 - a ready-made ethical manual already exists in the Torah and Talmud - it can surely be adopted even to robotic considerations.

What's ethical?

One would need a working, legally enforcible definition of "ethical". I can't see that being agreed upon in the next century.

Chanukah in the workplace??

When the robot asked what his workers thought about what he proposed...he wasn't truly interested in what they had to say. The real message behind the statement...that his workers understood...is that they had to agree with what he suggested or risk being pushed outa there. Another words...they were expected to conform. Chanukah in the workplace??

YES they should!

Corporations are in Ivory towers , Our governments do nothing to bring them to the people, yes they should be more accountable.
